Lump On The Skull On The Right Side Of The Head (behind The Ear)?
At noon, I have a 7 month old child, here I want to ask about the lump in the skull on the right side of the head (the position just behind the ear) is this dangerous or not, is it dangerous or not?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
In normal conditions, there is a bony protrusion behind the ear which is part of the skull bone. This bony prominence is part of the temporal bone. However, these bone spurs usually appear after 1 year of age.
Other conditions that can cause a lump in the skull on the right side of the head include:
1. Lymph nodes
To be sure, you should consult with a pediatrician so that a physical examination can be carried out as well as supporting imaging tests such as head X-rays if needed.
What you need to pay attention to is:
1. Is the lump getting bigger or longer in size over time.
2. Does the lump enlarge at a certain time.
This information is very useful for doctors to determine the type and cause of the lump.
Hopefully the following article can add information for you:

Thus, hopefully this is useful.
